Gelechid?

Postby Tim_Ward on Mon Jun 14, 2021 9:13 pm

Can anybody help me id this little Gelechid (8mm) which was in my Macclesfield trap last night?

I'm still assessing my catch but there must be well over twenty species of micro in the trap last night as well as 33 species of macro, all in good numbers.

Hi Tim

Looks like Neofaculta ericetella. I had one in my trap yesterday morning.

Regards
Steve
